As demand for qualified pilots and mechanics/engineers begins to rise around the world, so do opportunities to explore working in another country. Imagine experiencing the peaks and fjords of New Zealand’s South Island, exploring the Andes in South America, or living a short drive from where elephants and other large mammals roam in Africa.
Working abroad can be a real adventure and exceptionally satisfying. It is also very possible, with some advanced planning, research, and preparation.
Join us for the next HAI@Work webinar, Dec. 2, at 4 pm eastern (UTC-5), where we’ll talk with three operators from various parts of the globe about what it takes to qualify for, prepare for, and find the ideal international job:
Louisa “Choppy” Patterson is chief pilot, standards pilot, and CEO of Queenstown, New Zealand–based Over The Top. She founded the helicopter tour company, which specializes in giving visitors a bird’s-eye view of some of New Zealand’s most remote terrain.
Shaun Roseveare is CEO of Ultimate HELI in Johannesburg, South Africa. A graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s entrepreneurial master’s degree program, he oversees the daily operations of not only Ultimate HELI but of the full family of aviation companies under parent firm Ultimate Aviation Group, as well.
Francisco Diaz is COO of Ecocopter in Santiago, Chile. He joined the company as its second pilot in 2004 after a career in the Chilean Air Force. During the past 17 years, he’s worked to build Ecocopter to a fleet of more than a dozen Airbus helicopters and four bases throughout Chile and South America.
